Ariadne, waiting for Theseus

Endless seems the time, of Ariane's waiting, that in the distance of the sea Theseus' ship appears. Already her garment took the color of the rocks. And someday she will be a rock herself, a statue of eternal waiting.

One more tip for the reader: The aria of Ariadne in the opera 'Ariadne auf Naxos' by Strauss, stunningly beautiful, that you simply have to hear.


The painting 'Ariadne on Naxos', the waiting on a rock of shore, into which she herself slowly will transform, as a statue of herself. This became one of my often painted subjects. The picture is traditional, expressive and harmoniously fits into any room.
